Read the following. Posted Dreams follows.

Dreams are a succession of images, actions and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind primarily during the REM stage of sleep. Dreams are unbiased, spontaneous products of the unconscious, outside the control of conscious will. The act of dreaming is physical but the contents of dreams is psychological. They are NATURAL expressions of the dreamer's emotional/personal life illustrating experiences that possess strong emotional energies. Although there are literal applications in dreams the primarily language is symbolic, metaphorical of the dreamer's emotional energies.
  • 1. Dreams are about the emotions, emotional energies of the person who is dreaming. They offer advice and a deeper understanding of our waking life as well as the foundations for the emotional energies of the dreamer.

  • 2. The language of dreams is symbolic, but also with literal applications {literal waking experinces}. The symbolic images and actions are metaphors for the patterns or motifs for the dreamer's emotional/psychological/physical life. Every character in a dream is a different aspect of an unacknowledged aspect of the dreamer and/or a prevalent situation in the person's life involving actual persons/experiences {dreams will address both aspects}.

  • 3. The purpose and function of dreams is to guide the conscious self to achieve wholeness and offer a solution to the problems in waking life. Solutions to problems and conflicts from everyday life, as well as the deeper underlying issues, 'emotional injuries' that stem from the foundations of the dreamer {early life experiences and trama experiences in life}.
    ---Dreams reveal vital information that expose the authentic emotions and feelings that are often concealed from the conscious mind.
    ---Dreams compensate for conscious attitudes and personality traits that are out of balance.

  • 4. Dreams are intentional. Nature provides us with dreams to understand and help heal emotional conflicts/issues. Just as the body has the immune system to heal and protect, the psych{ology} has the dream.

  • 5. Dreams possess 'Archteypal' representations. Archetypes are universal, original patterns and images that derive from the collective unconscious and are the psychic counterpart of instinct. An archetype is an inherited tendency of the human mind to form representations of mythological motifs-representations of the symbolic images/actions without losing their basic emotional pattern. Dreams and mythology share the same archetypal images, myths as illustrations of the universal patterns and dreams as illustrations of personal patterns.

  • 6. All dreams have at least two meanings or applications. One is the symbolic representation metaphorical of the emotional energies and the second being a literal application where a person, place or experience is addressing a real life experience.

    Hair (?)

    I have a natural white streak in my hair, on the front, right side of my head. In my dream, a man whom I can't recognise because his face is cloudy, or blurred, says to me, "You look really old." I say, "Oh, well I try to do everything I can, so as not to look old." He says, "Well what's with this white swoosh in your hair?", I tell him that it's just a natural white streak, that my hair just grows that way, and he says, "If you're trying not to look old, why do you wear your toe tag on top of your head?"... TOE TAG?? What's THAT about????

    A few nights later, I dreampt that I took a pair of scissors, and started chopping off pieces of my hair, I have collar-length hair, and was cutting chunks off of the bottoms & sides. One one side, I took off a chunk & could see all the way to my scalp. BTW I didn't do anything to the top. where the white streak is.

    Anyone???????

    are you bothered by your white streak?

    a toe tag is something placed on a corpse in the morgue to identify them.

    Re: Hair (?)

    Yeah, I'm aware of the purpose of the toe tag. I'm not botherd by the streak, in fact people have comented that it's cool, its unique, they ask me if I "put it there"... I'm wondering why the toe tag comment came up, cuz I realize that dreams come from within, I'm wondering what I'm trying to tell myself, & why I cut my own hair so much & so badly?

    there are different ways that we develope a self image. What people say is jsut a part of it. So yes, people may like it, but part of you is not totally comfortable with it.
    If you want to take the meaning further, all kinds of analogies can be made, but it might exactly what it states on the surface

    for instance, it may be interpreted as a sign that your femininity is waning, or you feel that way, or you may think that men feel that way. But I don't think its that.

    Re: Hair (?)

    Catherine,
    Hair is often symbolic of the thinking self. Does your hair also reflect an independent streak? As for the second dream, you may be questioning that independence. But if it is natural, there is no other choice. There is nothing you can do that can change that.

    Does this fit who you are or close to it?

    Re: Hair (?)

    Hi Catherine

    Can I offer some additional thoughts.
    I remember there is a biblical reference to hair cuttine - Solomon ? We can look at this as Solomon loosing his virility, however perhaps there is another possibility.
    Hair is like grass in some ways - it doesn't complain that we are cutting it : it is as though it is meant to be cut ,,, is there anything in your life like this ? Something that it is appropriate to trim back ?
    Hair is something that comes out of us - from internal to external : so it can also be something to do with creativity. Something that we naturally create. Are you curtailing anything in that area ?

    The last thought has to do with the balance of masculine - feminine. Not sure where this is going, however, in your dream the masculine seems critical of your unique streak ,,, any clues there ? In your waking life, your famil, or inner world?

    All the best

    Re: Hair (?)

    Hey, thanks for all the contributions. Of course all of your suggestions aply in little ways. I have had passing thoughts of wether the white hair makes me look old, but because of other people's comments, I usually don't worry about the looking old thing... I guess I have been wondering about my appearance & men's perspectives. What woman doesn't, eh?

    I guess what bothered me the most was the "toe tag" reference. I'm not sure why I would go to that extreme in "talking to myself" about age?

    Cutting my hair... that's harder for me to understand. This will get you all going I'm sure, but I really appreciate the insight - My hair has always been very important to me. I've always had jobs that involved being "first seen", so to speak - receptionist, restaurant hostess, greeter for car rental co., things like that, and I've always paid attention to how my hair looks. So the fact that I "butchered" my hair to the point of seeing my scalp, is what really bothered me the most about that dream. It just isn't like me to do something like that.

    O.K., what do you think, toe tag & bare scalp?

    Re: Hair (?)

    Hi Catherine

    was your scalp bare ?? did you shave your head, except for the top ?

    Mentioning hair as part of our outward appearance is a very important point - this and the 'toe tag' both fit with how you are known in the outside world.

    Is your outlook on life changing ? Are things changing in the way you live / think about your life ?

    Re: Hair (?)

    Catherine,
    Old doesn't have to be about age. You state that age is not a real concern. It can be about wisdom. Or independence. The man is a masculine aspect. The blurring may signify not being completely aware of this aspect. The toe tag would be your identity. Referring back to my original post, that aspect of your identity may be what is blurred.

    Chopping off your hair {cutting} may suggest changes in thinking {hair is a common symbol for the thinking self, intellect, the mental process. If you are the creative type{which would be a natural, desirable aspect} and it is suggested you make changes to how you approach life, or aspects of life, that would be opposite who you are and a need to compromise that independent, and wise self {creative aspect being the superior aspect}. 'Not doing anything to the top' could mean not doing anything that would compromise your deepest principles.

    Look at your life Now {I assume the dream is recent} and compare the dream to what is occurring in your waking life. If it fits, then there lies the answer, whatever the dream message may be
